The highly popular Frozen Princesses descended on The Towneley Arms in Longridge for a fun day on Saturday during Longridge does Christmas.

It was very, very busy and youngsters loved the princesses meet and greet which was arranged by Rapunzel Parties.

The special princesses are part of the film Frozen – the a 2013 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy-comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen, the film tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal pet reindeer and a naive snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

Frozen underwent several story treatments for years, before being commissioned in 2011.

The screenplay was written by Jennifer Lee, and both Chris Buck and Lee served as directors.

It features the voices of Kristen Bell. Idina Menzel - who appeared on BBC TV’s One Show this week - Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad and Santino Fontana.

Christophe Beck, who had worked on Disney’s award-winning short Paperman, was hired to compose the film’s orchestral score, while husband-and-wife songwriting team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez wrote the songs.

Frozen premiered at the El Capitan Theatre on November 19, 2013, and went into general theatrical release on November 27. It was met with strongly positive reviews from critics and audiences, and some film critics considered Frozen to be the best Disney animated feature film and musical since the studio’s renaissance era. The film was also a massive commercial success.
